I have also contacted a doctor (about 3 hours away) who uses NaproTechnology! So I'll be interested to see if she will take me on as a patient.
In other news, I have started praying one prayer a day for Pope Benedict for the next 50 days. The Cardinal Newman Society has organized an Eastertide bouquet of prayers for the pope. I'm kind of excited about this because it's something spiritual that I can do for the next 50 days. I really enjoy Advent and Lent because they are organized times that kind of direct you toward a spiritual "end" (ie., Christmas and Easter, respectively) and after these days of preparation are over, I'm left wanting more, so I figure this is a great way to have another spiritual "focus" for 50 more days and certainly our pope could use some prayer warriors right about now!
We have been busy with work and preschool and Easter and preparing for Isabel's birthday. It's hard to believe that she will be 4 this year, and part of me wistfully speculates on the future....even if we got pregnant now, she would be nearly 5 before she had another sibling. It makes me sad that she will be so far apart from a brother or sister. She will in fact be more like a "little mommy" than a sibling. And although I know I would be extremely blessed to be able to get pregnant and have another healthy baby, a part of me is still extremely sad about how far apart they would be.
At the same time, I'm trying to be thankful that I can spend all my love, time and resources on my sweet little Isabel right now. While I try not to be indulgent with material things, she is certainly in a position where we can afford to spend a little more on her birthday or Christmas or various outings than we could if we had several other children, so for the moment I just have to "be there"....live in the moment of being able to devote all my attention to her.
Praying that the glorious resurrection of our Savior brought you great joy and hope this Easter! What a special day we have to remember the hope we have in our Lord, even when we are going through our own personal trials and challenges.
